Had to spend some money on my '92 Chevy pickup today. The last two days it wanted to dive across the center line when I used the brakes. Still has original rotors & calipers on it, at 270,000 miles. Rotors are tore up big time....
Anyway, a few years ago a friend gave me new GM calipers for it, so I bought new hoses, new rotors, seals, and wheel bearings. So tomorrow ( Saturday) I will have to get dirty & replace all these parts.
Trouble is, I would rather spend the money on my Elco project......but that's the way it goes....

I know that feeling. Money is better spent for fun not maintenance (at least it's easier to part with for fun stuff).

I replaced the idler a few months back, and that changed things enough to require an alignment. I couldn't believe it didn't need some steering parts except for the idler...... I do keep it lubed good though...
